These are like the fruit cakes of gift-giving. Not to sound ungrateful, but send random shwag with blinking LEDs, or CHOCOLATE!! Or better yet: Mrs. Beasley's. I've never met a muffin I didn't like.
As if that weren't bad enough, I just got an email saying I had a UPS delivery. Thinking it might have been my shiny new drilled Al pedals, all bug-eyed, I ran to the mailbox area, and quickly scanned all the boxes to find... nothing. Nothing but a stupid work-related letter that easily fit in my inbox.
Nothing fun for me today. I didn't even hear the sonic boom of the shuttle coming in.
[edit: i guess i did hear the sonic boom. after talking to my roommate, i realize the noise i thought was our upstairs neighbors slamming their sliding glass door closed was it.]
